than forty years playing in various bands
first in Ottawa and then later in Kingston,
Ontario. He evolved into the world of jazz
in the mid-eighties and has played in a wide
array of groups since that time including
the Big Swing Band, the Ron Gilbertson
Quintet, the Blue Swing Trio and various
spontaneous combos too numerous to name.
latest project has been as leader of Dr.
Jazz and the Fuel Cells. The common element
in all his music is 'swing'. "If it ain't
got it, it don't mean a thing." With his
wife Val, Brant continues to deliver swing
music whenever he can fit it around his fuel
cell research actvities. Says Brant: "From
the first time I played The Lady in Black I
felt that this guitar was made for me to
deliver the message of swing."
